The sun was out yesterday to bid farewell to Sydney's 'bitter' winter. On this occasion, I visited Marvic's home in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.

Rose Bay Wharf was pretty deserted apart from several families chilling on their private boats and a handful of teenagers procrastinating their HSC studies. That only means one thing: freedom to be our silly selves while shooting.

But my attempt to coerce Marvic into joining my happy dance backfired.

Me: "You'll never see these people again."

Him: "That's easy for you to say. I live here!"

Nevertheless, summer is creeping up; time to whip ourselves into shape, stock up on swimwear and get excited at the prospect of mangoes season. With that being said, the only form of dressing on my mind is trans-seasonal crops with cardigans and heaps of bright colours. I'm ready to spring clean the wardrobe and replace coats with lightweight knits, thermals with breezy silk tops and boots with open-toe sandals.

OUTFIT POST: Light Leaks






 
Sweater: Nique Clothing … Chinos: Roger David
Shoes: Vans … Necklace: Topman

As the eerie grey skies open up above the bustling Sydney streets, it seems almost inevitable that my mind grows nostalgic of the warmth and sunshine of the Australian summer. This unruly sense of longing for days filled only with sun, smiles and some much needed R&R is all that is ever-present this time of year. It is in moments such as these that I am truly thankful for the occasional, one-off days which seeming defy the dreary winter weather which too often plagues Sydney.

As I have instagrammed time and time again, my yearning for the days of summers passed is all that my arching heart desires. But instead of sitting here like an absolute dork, crying pathetically over something which is irrefutable out of my control, I have settled for the next best thing: photographs – of which, I’ve decided to share with those of you who are equally as needy as I am.

So here I impart to you the gift of a gorgeous sunny day which I hope will somewhat mend your broken heart, fill that empty void and reconstitute some form of happiness as you too, long for the days of the Australian summer.

As the gentle rays of golden sunlight shone softly through the twisted branches of the tree top canopies, as the sound of laugher and chatter sweetly synthesized with the ambient noise around me, in that exact moment, all that I could comprehend was the feeling of absolute bliss.

A darker colour palette and shapeless dressing makes up my daily uniform as Sydney gets increasingly moody and rainy. It's funny how stormy weather can affect our mood and the way we dress; getting out of bed becomes much harder and so are wearing tight jeans. That unpleasant feeling of wet denim stuck to your thighs made me ditch the skinny cut in favour of the boyfriend. Sometimes masculine shapes are so much more comfortable and effortless.
